Strait Coffee

Our ferry got into Gibson's around 10 and our massages at Rockwater Secret Cove weren't until 2, so we decided to stop in Sechelt for tea, a game of scrabble and lunch.

I'd done my darndest to try and find a good soup and sandwich place in Sechelt via the internet, but hadn't had any luck, so we decided to stop at Canadian Tire and ask for a recommendation.  Our stop obviously had nothing to do with the two Halloween costumes I purchased (for $10 total!) and the plethera of Christmas decorations we acquired...including the greatest snowman building kit ever!!  However, the lady at the register definitely pointed us in the right direction when she suggested Strait Coffee.

This was one of the greatest coffee shops I've ever been in.  It was comfy cozy, everyone was friendly and happy, it was busy but not hectic feeling, the food and drinks were delicious, and they even had free filtered water!

If you're driving up the sunshine coast, you have to stop at this place whether it's for a tea, coffee, some baked goods, or lunch.  No if's, and's or but's.

My snowflake chai latte.  Beautiful and delicious!  There were definitely no syrups here...all true spices.  I don't normally say this, but it was worth every penny of the $4.50 (tax in).

Best way ever to spend a rainy morning!

The view from our table.  You instantly felt relaxed and at home when you walked in.

The amazing display of home-made baked goods!  I wanted one of everything.

Lunch: Grilled cheese with ham and tomato on home-made bread, with a bowl of the navy bean and bacon home-made soup (approximately $14, tax in).  Pricey, but absolutely scrumptious!  I was about halfway through the soup when I realized that navy bean soup might not have been the best idea 2 hours before a massage...but have no fear, my worrying was for nought.

What to look for when you're on the hunt for Strait Coffee.
